    Thank you for replying. 
    How many ml of flush do you give and How many ml of blood do you discard?
    If you are aspirating from port do you do double flush?

    We aspirate from central lines but do a full waste tube first

    Dear members,
    Please, it is highly appreciated if you can share with me some information about the following practice:
    Do you aspirate PT/PTT/INR levels from polysite or PICC line or central line or you only aspirate them from peripheral sites?
    Thank you!
